We have been working with Firbeck Academy for a short while now and have received a testimonial from the school we are thrilled that with the help of the Aquinas Foundation Firbeck’s attendance scores have increased dramatically… we will continue to support the school and look forward to hearing of their future attendance results.
“The Aquinas Foundation approached the Firbeck Academy at the end of the academic year 12/13. We were offered a Bike which we could use to promote good attendance to school. Having received the bike in school we took it along to assembly to show all the children. They were all very excited. We decided in order for all children to be able to access the draw we would collect the data at the end of each half term and students with 100% attendance would be entered into the end of year draw.
The children understand that if they are absent during any of the half terms they have the chance to start again, which is a real incentive. The bike is displayed in a prominent position in the dining room which the children use on a daily basis. Having seen such positive results the Academy has also invested in prize draws at the end of each half term which keeps the interest going.”
“The results have been amazing!!”
During the first half term we saw an increase of 59% more students achieving 100%.
Term 2 an amazing increase – 152%.
Term 3 increase – 47%. Term 4 – 10%.
